Crossover International Academy is a school dedicated to helping children who are former slaves from the nearby fishing industry or children who have otherwise been orphaned in the Lake Volta region of Ghana. Crossover serves as a home, a school, and a family for these children, with the goals of building a multipurpose structure using principles in sustainability, developing better food security and supplemental income through the use of aquaponics, and creating innovative and collaborative educational opportunities that can translate to brighter futures. Over the last couple of years, Crossover has established itself as the leading educational institutional in the region.
For those interested in lending financial support to Crossover, readers may go to the official website to donate and to learn more about how you can get involved.
In addition, please remember that Blastoff Comics will donate a portion of their proceeds to this worthwhile organization this month. If you have the opportunity, I would encourage you to stop by Blastoff, meet the incredibly personable store owners, and assist in helping both Crossover and local business owners by picking up a few comics. As the Blastoff website says, "Comics can make saving the world look easy." By shopping at Blastoff, it has never been easier to save the world, one comic book at a time.
If you have a volunteer opportunity or an important cause that could use the assistance of a few geeks, please email the details to barbra (at) fanboycomics.net.
